The Compliance Priorities set out where IPART’s Energy Sustainability Schemes Team will focus its compliance resources for the year. Being transparent about our Compliance Priorities can assist businesses to understand where compliance attention will be focussed and to take steps to address identified risks.  

This enables us to target resources to the areas of greatest risk and to better achieve our objectives of maintaining the integrity of the Safeguard Schemes and realising positive sustainability outcomes for the people of NSW.
